About World Interaction Design Day (IXDD)

About the event

“The speakers were really amazing and the interaction with them at the end made it great.” — Vishant

“…Intellectual honesty revisited..” — Veetrag

Trust and Responsibility in design

Drawing the line between influencing and manipulation

Enter emerging technologies and data-driven brands

So, what can we do about it?

“Community breeds standards; standards breed accountability; accountability breeds trust; licensure validates that trust…”

“..in short, a veil of ignorance is a way of determining whether what you’re designing, be it a startup, a dinner plan, or a system of government, is just. It’s very simple: when designing something, imagine that your relationship to that system gets determined after you have made it.”
